My final month was busy, just as all of the other months of my tenure as your president. We started off the month on the 4th at the Spotlight on Scholars at Creekside Church. We had lions there for the setup, preparation of water and tea and for the breakdown. Additionally, we presented scholarships to this year’s recipients. Congratulations to Susan Zhang and Faith Meeker this year’s recipients of our scholarships. You can see the photos below. We selected May 10th as our Chili’s Give Back event and we are waiting to see how much we earned for the day. Our Senior Center Pancake Breakfast was on the 13th. On the 18th was the EGHS Senior Class Sunset Breakfast and on the 20th, our crew worked the bar at the Musical Mayhem Event.
Thanks for all your help in a very busy year. It has been a pleasure to serve as your President for the past year. I plan to be an active past president, providing assistance to incoming President Sharon Mika. Please join me and offer your support of our new President.
Thanks again for another productive month serving our community.

Lions are in 200 countries and geographic areas. We have 45,000 clubs with over 1.3 million members world wide. We have a dynamic history. We are best known for fighting blindness — it’s part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of projects including disaster relief — across many borders. We serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools with new programs and resources. Internationally, we offer many programs.
We hope you will consider joining our club.
To become a Lion, you must be of good moral character and good reputation in our community.
Membership is by invitation.
